    Who are your favorites for AL/NL MVP?

    Personally, I don't believe a pitcher should win the MVP.
    Who would be the best choice for AL/NL MVP?

    Code:
                                     
    RK  PLAYER            TEAM    RC     wOBA   wRC+
    1   Miguel Cabrera     DET   134.3   .471   201
    2   Mike Trout         LAA   131.3   .430   179
    3   Chris Davis        BAL   123.0   .431   174
    4   Joey Votto         CIN   113.9   .401   156
    5   Shin-Soo Choo      CIN   108.7   .394   151
    6   Andrew McCutchen   PIT   106.5   .393   155
    7   Paul Goldschmidt   ARI   106.2   .398   151
    8   Matt Carpenter     STL   103.3   .377   144
    9   Edwin Encarnacion  TOR   102.1   .392   147
    10  Robinson Cano      NYY   101.0   .381   139
    <AL> 1. Miguel Cabrera 2. Mike Trout 3. Chris Davis 4. Edwin Encarnacion 5. Robinson Cano

    <NL> 1. Joey Votto 2. Shin-Soo Choo 3. Andrew McCutchen 4. Paul Goldschmidt 5. Matt Carpenter

    Cabrera and Votto are my choices.

    Cabrera and McCutchen, most likely. Maybe Yadi.

    I think Carpenter is much more deserving of MVP than Molina.

    The AL side is easy, it'll be Cabrera in a landslide.

    The NL side is much, much more difficult to handicap since nobody has really distinguished themselves from the group. I think what happens down the stretch in the NL Central may well decide the MVP, as McCutchen, Votto, Carpenter and Molina are all viable candidates. Slight lean to McCutchen for now.

    WAR is a really bad indicator for MVP.

    I was marveling yesterday that Hanley is not getting more consideration. He's provided more production in a partial season than most have in the whole year. Tat said my votes would be Cabrera and Cutch.

    I know there is already the Cy Young, but Clayton Kershaw's season is so ridiculously good he has to be the MVP as well.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    True, but he pitches in LA in the post roid era. Great, but in context, not MVP worthy.

    Ramirez, despite negative press his whole career, has lifted that Dodgers team out of the ditch virtually by himself.

    The key is that Hanley has provided solid defense at SS as well. He really is the perfect definition of most valuable player for most voters: Without him, the team was in a rut. As soon as he was back in the lineup, the team took off and has played incredible baseball. Add in he plays the second most important defensive position on the field, quite well, and has put up monster numbers offensively, and he clearly is the true MVP.

    The only thing is that I can't remember an MVP who only played 90 games.
